Cauliflower cheese hero 65beb4c7 ecfe 4a21 8b9f 6a800734b1b9 0 472x310

The perfect Christmas side, this creamy cauliflower cheese recipe will steal the show. Here we use Parmesan for a nice change however feel free to use your trusty Cheddar. 

  1. Heat the oven to Gas 4, 180°C, 350°F.
  2. Cook the cauliflower florets in boiling water for 5 minutes, remove and drain, leave in the colander to continue to drain.
  3. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, add flour and mix to a smooth paste. Remove from the heat, add a small amount of milk and mix until smooth, continue until all the milk is incorporated. Add seasoning, return to the heat, stirring constantly, and bring to a gentle simmer for 1 minute.
  4. Add cheese, reserving some, and mix. Pour a little of the sauce into an oven-proof dish, add cauliflower and spoon over the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with the reserved cheese and place in the oven for 10 minutes until bubbling and golden.
